send it over to gianna. good morning. happy friday. conditions at the altamont pass towards the dublin interchange, it is "friday light" so good news there. we have roadwork in oakland eastbound 580 ramp to westbound 9 0 closed until 5:00. today santa clara university will again offer free vaccinations to students in hopes of preventing a meningitis outbreak. more than 1,000 students lined up for the shots there yesterday and food was offered to those in line. as that happened, scu announced a third student has been infected with the disease. the latest now from mark sayre reporter: as the vaccination clinic stretched into the night there was no let-up in the line. santa clara university is urging all 5400 undergraduate students to get vaccinated against the meningococcal
infection. three cases have been confirmed on the campus. >> it's frightening because it was an all of a sudden outbreak something everyone is talking about. >> reporter: natalie is a sophomore. >> i'm not a big fan of shots but at the same time, i'll take advantage of the opportunity. >> reporter: at least two cases are tied to a fraternity on campus. students say they were surprised when they found out they needed the vaccination, which the university is providing for free. >> it's up. school is handling it pretty well. it's freaking some people out. >> reporter: while most people do get routine vaccinations against the infection, the particular strain going around scu was not covered until now. >> the good news is there is a new vaccine just fda-approved in 2014 and 2015 that does cover this serogroup b and if vaccinated will give protection from infection. >> reporter: mark sayre, kpix 5. >> the vaccination requires two shots. the students will have to line
up all over again in 30 days. in addition, more than 200 students who have had close contact with the patients are now on antibiotics. in alameda a person died of meningitis last month. health officials say there is no sign of a link between that case and those in santa clara. the search continues this morning for the burglars who used a truck to ram into an east bay liquor store. andria borba shows us the wreckage they left behind. reporter: you can see the repair work where the truck went through the building but file this one under "unsuccessful criminals." with a jolt that looked as strong as an earthquake a pickup truck crashed at the corner of san pablo and gilman in berkeley. at the top of the screen you can see a few men with a singular goal. >> they tried to steal the atm machines inside. >> reporter: tried is the operative word. >> looks like the machines were too heavy. >> reporter: undeterred the truck slammed into the store again 30 seconds later. >> looks like suspects tried to pick it up but it was too heavy
so they left empty-handed. >> reporter: what was left, besides the atm machine, was a mess, a literal wet bar of top shelf liquor bottles broken on the floor and a gaping hole through the door and the side of the building. the door, windows, the shelves and booths may be missing, and so is the atm. the owner took it out in the hopes his business won't get turned into a drive-through again. now, berkeley police officers tell me they believe the truck used in all of this was stolen. in berkeley, andria borba, kpix 5. pacifica is seeing new damage from the force of the ocean. relentless powerful waves have carved out another gaping hole on the promenade. chopper 5 was overhead yesterday and parts of the promenade on beach boulevard are now rubble. the hole is about 25 feet long and 4 feet deep. waves almost as tall as pier continue to batter the seawall. visitors are warned to be
careful near the shore and people who live nearby are getting nervous. >> this is frightening. it's one thing that you have the seawall failing a block and a half away. but when it's closer to home it's frightening. >> crews made repairs yesterday but the overall fix will take longer and more problems are likely to develop as high waves continue to slam the coast. we're heating up here weather-wise, but if it weren't for the super bowl, they would actually have is the maverick surf competition this weekend because the waves are so big. >> it does -- you know, there's a lot of things that go into the factor when you start talking about the mavericks. we start looking at maps all the way to japan for the waves. they like clear skies for mavericks and usually -- [ simultaneous speakers and usually you like the temperatures in the 70s, as well. good morning, everybody. as you are getting ready to step out, we have clear skies. we also have temperatures very chilly into the 30s and 40s.

process. >> there were hundreds of timber piles that were used in the erection of the truss. however, now we have been environmental stewards so as to not put any of those piles into the bay. >> caltrans says traffic on the bridge shouldn't be affected. removing all the old sections will take two years. you can watch the entire process online, although it's slow. most of the action takes place around noontime. the two remaining democratic candidates for president are taking a tougher tone ahead of tuesday's new hampshire primary. last night hillary clinton and bernie sanders faced off in a debate. kpix 5's anne makovec is in our newsroom this morning. anne, they came out swinging reporter: both of them turning up the heat ahead of tuesday's primary. the candidates are sounding more caustic than ever. last night, democrats hillary clinton and bernie sanders faced off in their first-ever one-on-one debate. they aggressively confronted each other over who is better
equipped to actually live up to the expectations of progressive voters. clinton accusing sanders of leveling attacks against her integrity by portraying her as overly cozy with wall street. >> now, if all we're going to talk about is one part of our economy and indeed one street in our economy, we're missing the big oil companies. we are a missing other big -- we're missing other big energy conditions. we're missing the big picture. >> "madam secretary," it is not one street. wall street is an entity of unbelievable economic and political power. >> reporter: our political expert melissa caen says we can expect things to get hotter. >> we are definitely looking at a more contentious campaign between these two than we have seen in the past as they head into new hampshire and beyond, south carolina and nevada. things are going to get tighter between the two of them. the finger point something going to get more serious -- the finger-pointing is going to get more serious.
>> reporter: on the republican side a new poll shows donald trump is leading in new hampshire with senators marco rubio and ted cruz behind him. trump will take center stage tomorrow night when 7 of the 9 remaining republicans face off in the eighth debate. now, new hampshire's vote on tuesday won't necessarily be indicative of how the rest of the country will vote. but it's going to send a strong signal to party officials and donors about who to throw their support behind. live in the newsroom, anne makevoc, kpix 5. we are getting ever so close, a little more than two days until super bowl 50 on sunday, 2 days, to air on kpix 5 your television home for super bowl 50. the crowds are getting bigger at super bowl city. in san francisco, chopper 5 got this beautiful aerial view over the waterfront last night. ♪[ music ] >> last night's entertainment
